I POSSIBLE EXCLUSION OF PUBLIC AND PRESS
The Sub-Committee resolved, under Section 50(A) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, that the public and press be excluded during consideration of the undernoted item on the grounds that it involved the likely disclosure of information which is exempt in terms of Paragraph 5 of Schedule 7A to the Act.
II EDUCATION (SCOTLAND) ACT 1980 - EARLY ADMISSION
There was submitted correspondence from parents requesting that their daughter (d.o.b. 4.3.96) be admitted to primary school at the start of session 2000/01.
